Weng Chun Kuen (Perpetual Spring Fist)


wengchunkuenwengchunkuenThe Weng Chun (Sap Yat) Kuen is the core set of weng chun, a basic practice form consisting of 11 sections, which is applied in Chisao. it is more of a “theory” than a “form” – a set of methods for optimising the free use of the body to win over a strong attacker. This form was thought to be the original of Wing Chun’s Siu Nim Tao, Chum Kiu and Bill Jee.










Fa Kuen (Flower Fist)


fakuenfakuenThe flower is the symbol of the Sim (Chan/Zen) philosophy of Weng Chun Kuen and is a special form that GGM Chu Chung Man learned in Guanzhou and incorporated in the Shaolin Weng Chun Kung Fu system, other families later incorporated this form in their curiculum after learning it in Dai Duk Lan. GM Chu Chung Man taught at least three versions of the form during his life time. One is a short version most probably developed in Dai Duk Lan by cutting away the fancy techniques GM Chu Chung Man thought to be less important. This set teaches how to use the entire body for both long and short distance fighting. The students will start with the short version and progress to the much longer versions.








Sam Bai Fat (Three Bows to Buddha)

The set consists of eleven sections and its focus is to expand the ability of the Weng Chun Kuen practitioner to cover all of space and time through the concept of bowing to Heaven, Earth, and Human.

It combines fast, agile steps in all directions with whole body movement. The set includes all concepts and principles from the long pole, wooden dummy, etc. In appearance, this last, traditional Weng Chun set looks simmilar to Taijiquan, Xingyiquan, and Baguazhang.
